TOPIC: Wisdom To Accomplish Purpose – By David Ibiyeomie
Eccl. 10:15 -The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.
Many believers have discovered their purpose on earth but they do not know what to do with it or how to pursue it. The ‘know-how’ is very important in everything that you engage in.
Prov.4:7 -Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Matt.7:24 -Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Wisdom is the acquisition and intelligible application of relevant knowledge. To be a star, you must be current in knowledge. Result is a function of knowledge. It is not who you know that makes you a star but what you know. You must have a working knowledge of your assignment. Don’t use prayer and fasting to cover knowledge. If you lack skill in your field, your dream will die.
When you are knowledge lazy, you end up as a drop-out. Many people have discovered where they are going but only a few know how to get there. You must go for relevant knowledge and apply them in your field. What you know determines your exploits.
Dan.11:32b -…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Don’t mistake school for education. Schooling empowers you to be literate but it is self-development that makes you a star. School gives you the privilege to be literate but what will make you a star is when you develop yourself. Without investment in knowledge, you don’t have a future. You must study if you don’t want to be stupid in your field.
2Tim.2:15 -Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
You must have a knowledge-craving culture. People don’t fail because they don’t know something; they fail because they don’t know enough. A wise man said that you cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.
See yourself as a star, then you work towards it by investing in yourself by acquiring knowledge. If you want to be a star, walk in wisdom; and to walk in wisdom, you need relevant knowledge. Stop using religion to cover reality.
God bless you
